This is what a next-generation version of Super Mario in First-Person Mode could look like

Awesome, although Mario would be one of those games that would never work in first person. Even just watching that video made me dizzy.

Great job by the creator.

What I didnt notice immediately is that there is the old 2d image thing in the corner to help you out. That makes it so much better.
Neonridr  +   607d ago
yeah it was very well done..

jumping flash....
anyone remember that PS1 game???

That is what a FP mario game would remind me of but be mario instead of a robo-rabbit.

This is so cool. Nintendo should hire him.

Haha one of the first things that came to many people's minds, as it did to mine. Just simply 'cool'. Very well done video, but trying to control it would be near impossible. Very good effort, but how would you dodge stuff from behind?

That is why I don't think it would work. If anyone had any ideas on how it would, share. (The 2D in the corner might be distracting and helpful at the same time)

Nah nah I know, I see I was likely downvoted because people thought I meant just to make a game like this...I mean, just look at his work, it is cool yes, I just mean in general he could probably do some really cool things for Nintendo if he was given free reign..not just make a Mario game into a 1st person Mario haha.

Well done!

From 1:12 till the end of the video it was really awesome
but all that jumping at the beginning of the video was just unappealing ..

Edit:
I mean that it's unappealing because the jumping was being done in First person perspective.

Yeah I felt the same way, great job to the person that made this, but those several jumps in the beginning just got me dizzy :-P
That was awesome,, Got a bit dizzy but i wouldn't mind trying it.

Very well done.

This is awesome, but playing it in 3D makes mario look like an idiot not just walking beside the rig instead of going head on with the bombs LOL!

Either way, i would love to see First person integrated into certain aspects of mario, I dobut a full first person view would ever work...kinda felt like portal at times!

2D levels converted to 3D won't work, but playing Mario that were made with 3D in mind (like mario 64, sunshine and galaxy) might actually work to some level with first person.

That's just never going to happen.

Too bad we won't see something like this during the Wii U's lifespan...):

First person Mario sucks
Jagsrock  +   607d ago
Well Bowser looked cool, the rest just made me dizzy.
CalvinKlein  +   607d ago
THis is a very well done video, but I would never want to play a game like this. It just doesnt look fun at all
FernandoMartinez  +   607d ago
This would be the worst game ever.
